Saffron Villa

Dikwella Bedrooms: 4 Guests: 8

Occupies one of the finest locations on the south coast of Sri Lanka

The Saffron House occupies one of the finest locations on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Set in nearly three acres of tropical walled gardens, this fully staffed villa provides stunning panoramic ocean views, sea breezes, 100 metres of dramatic rocky seafront, simple luxury and complete privacy.

The villa lies about 15 kms from the southern tip of the island and about 45 minutes from Galle. It has four double bedrooms, with extra beds available for children. 
The entrance lies up a quiet lane, 30 metres above sea level, the highest point on this small headland and sandwiched between two of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful beaches, each just a few minutes’ walk away. Hiriketiya (Horseshoe) Bay, a 250 metres stroll, is idylic, with safe swimming and a year-round surf break. 
There are large open and covered verandas for dining and relaxing. The swimming pool adjoins the veranda and main courtyard and all have stunning views to sea. There are four en-suite double bedrooms, three of which are set around the courtyard, with the fourth bedroom closer to the sea.
The gardens include bougainvillea, heliconia, Japanese araliya, hibiscus, mango, wood-apple and much more, including a vegetable garden. Below the main lawn, a coconut grove slopes down to the dramatic rocky shoreline; all to explore. Watch the sun set over Dondra lighthouse on the southern tip of the island and later, the fishing lights out to sea at night.

The Saffron House mixes traditional and contemporary design, reflected in hand-built furniture, hand-finished floors and simple tropical architecture, all from local materials. 
The house is set around a central paved courtyard, about 20 metres above sea level. The courtyard is flanked on two sides by a large covered veranda with an adjoining kitchen, an open veranda for sunbathing and a 6 x 10 metre swimming pool. The pool's infinity edge faces directly south through the coconut trees and over the surf to the horizon.
The main covered veranda is the centre of the house with a dining area by the Koi fish pond and large sofas for relaxing at the south end, overlooking the terrace, the pool and the ocean beyond.
The bedrooms are cool and airy, with polished concrete floors and contemporary furniture, hand-built from local teak and mango. Thick 12" mattresses and fine linen lie on striking, under-lit polished concrete beds topped with huge mosquito nets. Each room has a selection of thick white towels, coloured beach towels and lots of flowers. 
  • The Master bedrooms: The two largest Master bedrooms are set on the north side of the courtyard, each with large adjoining bathrooms partially open to the sky. Both of these rooms face the courtyard and they also look onto separate small gardens of their own.
  • The Courtyard bedroom: This smaller bedroom lies on the west side of the courtyard and has wonderful elevated views across its own small private garden and lawn to the sea. Behind the bedroom is a simple, stylish bathroom.
  • The Sea bedroom: This bedroom lies much closer to the sea and provides more privacy. A similar size to the Courtyard bedroom, it is also bright and airy, with the whole of the south end of the room opening onto its own private terrace, just 30 metres from the sea and the sound of the surf.
